  • The Cultural Heritage of SEOUL(TBS) SMG 3035

    N Seoul Tower is a symbol and landmark of Seoul, the capital city of South Korea, and also a popular tourist destination. Since it reopened in 2005 under its new name, N Seoul Tower (formerly, Namsan Tower), it has been reborn as a new type of cultural space.
    Visitors who take the high-speed elevator (40 meters per second) to the observation deck are not only offered a sweeping view of Seoul but can even see as far as the Yellow Sea of Incheon and Songaksan Mountain near Gaeseong to the north. N Seoul Tower features a variety of facilities, including the Teddy Bear Museum, N Restaurant, and N Shopping. Currently, it is planning various concerts as well as the Love Festival and events related to the Locks of Love, targeting the younger generation. Equipped with broadcasting facilities and an observation deck for tourists, N Seoul Tower appeared on the scene in 1970 as an integrated facility on the same level as Japan’s Tokyo Tower and the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and it will continue to serve as a top landmark that provides the most beautiful view of Seoul.
